An astounding work blending memoir and fiction, Monsters takes the author’s deeply personal story of estrangement from her sister as a starting point to explore how patriarchy and colonisation manifest themselves in the personal relationships between women.
A sensitive, personal and thoughtful exploration of power structures in the world today, the author uses research on her family’s involvement in the British colonisations of India and Africa to reflect on contemporary systems of power. Alison Croggon has published poetry, novels, and criticism, winning major awards in all these genres.
